Ha roo, everypup! It's me - Zim!
Did you read our pal Indy's blog the other day? He reminded all of us that today is Spay Day! He pointed out some of the health benefits to spaying or neutering your pets - please surf on over and read his post! You'll also see, in the comments, a great little poem Holly wrote. Our resident poet, Dave, really liked it, so here it is:
To spay is the way, and to Neuter is to be cuter!!
Ha roo roo roo!
The website Just One Litter reminds us of some pretty scary stats. It's not just for our health, it's for pet over-population:
In six years one female dog and her offspring can be the source of 67,000 puppies.
In just seven years, one female cat and her young can produce 420,000 kittens.
There is theoretically no limit to the number of offspring male dogs and cats can produce.
Every day in the United States, tens of thousands of puppies and kittens are born. Compare this to the 11,000 human births each day, and you can see that there can never be enough homes for all these pets.
Makes you think, doesn't it? Please encourage your owners and others to spay and neuter their pets!
